Allen Railroad History / Sam Bass Day Celebration

Saturday, February 23, 2019

The annual Allen Railroad History/Sam Bass Day celebration commemorates Allen being founded by the Houston and Texas Central Railroad (H&TC) in 1874. At 11:10 a.m., historian Warren Johnson tells the story of Sam Bass, then at 12:30 p.m. and again at 1:30 p.m., Allen High School drama students will re-enact the famous Sam Bass robbery. Several family-friendly activities are planned—ring the Ebenezer Allen steam train bell; watch blacksmiths at work; and take your picture as part of the Sam Bass gang.
